Comment on proposed new, revised Home Care requirements for EM standards
In late 2019, The Joint Commission began discussing opportunities for improving its Emergency Management (EM) chapter. The revisions in the EM chapter include a complete restructuring of the chapter, as well as reviewing each accredited program’s EM chapter standards to align with current industry standards and to eliminate chapter redundancy.
For the Home Care Accreditation program, these new and revised emergency management standards will help organizations develop and improve their actions and responses to emergencies or disasters. The EM chapter and the revised changes will be released in July 2023.
Comment now on the proposed changes. Feedback will be accepted until Aug. 24.
